Before I begin, this post goes out to my friend, Maggie. She wanted me to post about the new dresses, so here goes!

The other day, I posted a picture of the bridesmaid dresses I initially picked, and the dress I wanted my bridesmaids to try on. The lovely Beth Anne, my wonderful bridesmaid, happened to have some spare time this Saturday, so she and I took a trip to David’s Bridal! *let the pictures ensue!*

This cute number modeled by Beth Anne is a cute vneck dress. Very light, had pockets, and had a great top half. This was only the first dress she tried though, so we kept on to make sure there wasn’t anything else we loved.

This next dress was the one I had mentioned in my last post about changing the bridesmaid dresses to. Overall we loved the style. The ruching at the top part of the dress was cute, we loved the y-neck, but did not like the bubble hem (probably because the fabric didn’t make it poof a little bit more) and didn’t like how the top part didn’t completely fill her out. Beth Anne is my middle of the road (in size) bridesmaid, so I had to make sure the dress was something a smaller bridesmaid could wear, and a larger bridesmaid as well.

The it was onto the next. I had seen this dress on David’s Bridal online too, and thought it was adorable, and in person (even in this yucky brown they had in her size) it was so pretty too! The only qualms I had about it were these strings that held the ribbon in place (which were too large and unnecessary) and it also had boning where the boobs are. The boning is just NOT a good idea there because from the side, it makes boobs look almost triangular! Plus, BA said the dress fit a bit tight because of how it’s made, and I want my girls to be comfortable, so we nixed that dress as well.

This dress became my final pick. Gorgeous y-neck, a fabric that can hold up through the day (and lets Texas, if you don’t like the weather…wait 5 mins for it to change!), and no bubble hem! Plus, it fit BA’s chest perfectly and looked great from behind. She’s already got a great figure (partly because she is crazy enough to run the Baylor Bear Trail at ungodly hours of the evening..without mace!), so anything looked good on her, but this looked AMAZING! Now, the dresses won’t be in this gorgeous blue, but in David’s Bridal’s Watermelon (like a bright pink, fuchsia).

Also, while we were there, I decided to use my David’s Bridal gift certificate that I won via Twitter through their “Dressed Obsessed” contest which was for $100. Beth Anne helped me try on several dresses, and I fell in love with this!

It’s definitely not my normal style pattern-wise, but I love it! It’s a heavier fabric, which will go perfectly for December 2 as a rehearsal dinner dress! I’ll pair it with some sexy black heels and a cute black or plum cardigan (preferably with jeweled buttons). I’m quite excited about it! I also was able to get a new clutch for the wedding (which I wasn’t initially going to get a purse, but then my dress was $99, then $79 because I bought my wedding dress there, so I needed something to equal or go over $100). It’s really pretty and has pearls all over the front of it!

Overall, I’d say it was a successful trip to David’s, don’t you? Picked a new bridesmaid dress, had fun, and got 2 free things! Sweet!
